Hello Sven,
You can start with 5.5 in front and 0.5 in rear.

You can ask Bjorn or myself for setup help in Belgium

You are correct!

If you are using Volante tires,I can send you my start setup. Car was easy, just need more steering

ok nice that would be fine. i've got a start to work around than. The last batch volantes have indeed less steering, grip, need less harder damping in comparision with the old volantes, but the wear is less.

Ok tkx, 1 thing that take my intension.
Longer camberlinks in front than rear, makes indeed easy to drive but less direct steering, why not obtain for hole 2 instead of 4.

Those are the rear settings on the setup sheet, longest links in the rear. 2nd shortest links in the front.

Few questions about your setup.

1 - Why is it you're running -2.5 degree camber on the front? Wouldn't you be able to attain front grip by adjusting the upper link for more camber gain?

2 - Is there a reason why you are running 0.5 mm of rear droop on the rear?

Cheers.

Default new post old car d06

Known problem. With right rear hub toe in. Blocks used co e30 for 3 deg toe in. Left will be 3 and right side be at 4. Suspension arms installed way manual says. I flip the right suspension arm opposite And now I get 3 deg on right side. Is there anything wrong with running the arm that way? Or should I do the left rear the same way?

because the rear hub is not a traditional rear hub, and you can't mesure it at the same spot so 0.5mm will like 5mm on a other car.
